super pacs with their own billionaires behind them. santorum's got foster freese, financier, behind him. and in some ways, these super pacs are prolonging the race by keeping candidates who might have been just happening to give up at a certain point earlier if they didn't have the money, a chance to keep going. so you're seeing another result of the money, i think, also here. >> john harwood, what are we seeing in the president's position on super pacs? and my first question to you, john, about this is why are we seeing it? why did the president feel compelled to let it be known publicly that yes, he acknowledges that the super pac created for him last year that we all know about, he actually would be happy to see people contribute to that? why not just let the word go out in the more -- that put less of a focus on some sense of inconsistency in the president's position? >> well, because that's what they did in 2011. and the money didn't exactly come rolling in over the transom. if you compare how much priorities usa action and other democratic-associated super pacs raised, it was a fr
should mention, i'm sure you noticed this, jim, the closing choice of mr. freese, which is the rick santorum vest. i don't know if it's one that was sold on his website but here you see with members of his family, rick santorum. there's his oldest daughter who has traveled with him quite a bit. again, a crowd that knows rick santorum. many have supported him since his days in the u.s. senate, fought very hard for him. still, to this day, in spite of the huge loss he suffered have suggested that, in fact, he lost because he was targeted by democrats because of his strong conservative views. now, as jim said, getting a serious second look by a lot of people after the three wins this week, has had a cool and at ease demeanor. obviously, in front of a crowd that is behind him at least in terms of the kinds of issues he spoke so forcefully about. let's listen to rick santorum. >> it's great to be here at cpac. i will not be telling any jokes. foster cornered the market on that. thanks for that wonderful reception for not just me but for most of my family that is here. first, the folks th

santorum and foster freese. multimillionaire backer of the super pac associated with rick santorum also likes to -- >> if he is willing to make me the way he's backing -- i will reconsider. >> since we are talking about rick santorum, i thought we would stay on the topic we played this bitter of sound yesterday that was uncovered by people for the american way. and it was rick santorum speaking to ave maria college. let's play that sound first just so people can hear what we thought was the most jaw-dropping moment in a speech that was quite a remarkable speech overall. here he is speaking in 2008. >> we all know that this country was founded on a judeo-christian ethic but the judeo-christian ethic was a protestant judeo-christian ethic. sure the catholics had some influence. mainstream, main line protestants and, of course, we look at the shape of main line protestants in this country and it is in shambles. it is gone from the world of christianity, as i see it. >> gone from the world of christianity as i see it. that's -- that is excommunicating millions of americans. i mean, lutheran
